  • Question: Difference between the following words ...

    :salams

    What is the differences between, ajr, hasanat, and thawab?

    Please dont say they all mean the same thing ie reward; every word in our deen has a background to it from what I gather so far at this stage of my life, and I would like to know more about the differences with these words in particular. Apologies if it is a silly question; the mind is curious, it is how it is.

    BarakAllahu feekum

    If i'm not mistaken
    Hasanat: is a good deed that is written in your book bithin Allah.
    Thawab: Is the reward you got for each of your hasanat.
    Ajr: i believe is an ongoing good deed/s.

    Wa Allahuwa'alem.

      السلام عليكم يا أختي الكريمة


      الحسنات is the feminine plural of the word حسن which means good. In this instance it means good deeds.

      الأجر means reward or recompense for something you've done, like a wage.

      الثواب is a synonym of the word above however I believe but am mostly likely wrong it is for rewards just pertaining to here after.

            ﺣﺴﻨﺎﺕ is plural of ﺣﺴﻨﺔ - which mean good (deed)
            root is ﺣﺴﻦ which means beautiful or good

            ﺃﺟﺮ - is what you get for doing work, in islamic terms its reward for good deeds, its root has the meaning of being hired and to hire (for work)

            ﺛﻮﺍﺏ - ﺟﺰﺍﺀ ﻳﻜﻮﻥ ﻓﻲ ﺍﻟﺨﻴﺮ و ﺍﻟﺸﺮ ﺍﻟﺎ ﺍﻧﻪ ﻓﻲ ﺍﻟﺨﻴﺮ ﺍﺧﺺ ﺍﻭ ﺍﻛﺜﺮ ﺍﺳﺘﻌﻤﺎﻟﺎ و ﻋﻜﺴﻪ ﻋﻘﺎﺏ
            so thawaab is a recompanse in good or bad but its usually used as a good reward and its opposite is iqaab, so its basically a good reward, and it also means ﻋﻂﺎﺀ which is basically a granting

                Question 2

                What is the differences between كوكب and نجم - I mean, they both mean star, but why two different words? What are the roots? What context are they used in? Any examples can be provided etc

                BarakAllahu feekum


                Edit: if you use arabic, please will you type with a large font, i really struggle to read it in its tiny form.

                  كوكب kawkab is a planet basically (and doesn't give out light)
                  نجم najm is a star
                  and as for the roots, you don't need to know them yet, they are hardly used and can be learned later

                      سبحان الله ما أبلغ هذه اللغة
                      أصغي
                      أستمع

                      ...
                      كل هذه الكلمات تدل على السمع ولكن لكل منها معنى خاص
